STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Part two of the Sports Illustrated article investigating Oklahoma State University football was released Wednesday morning.

The magazine says Wednesday's story focuses on alleged academic fraud and a player who was interviewed by Sports Illustrated spoke exclusively to us.

Fath' Carter says he now regrets doing the interview with Sports Illustrated and even feels he was misled about the focus of the story. He thought it would focus on OSU's meteoric rise to success, not alleged corruption. But he maintains everything he told Sports Illustrated is true.

Sports Illustrated says Wednesday's report, using more interviews with former players, will allege serious academic violations.

Wednesday's article clearly goes beyond the football field. In Tuesday's story, Sports Illustrated said former players detailed how they would receive hundreds, even thousands, for on-field performance and bogus jobs.

"You gotta keep in mind 19 year olds and 18 year olds, whatever it may be, we have no idea that this is really against NCAA regulations, we kind of get the feeling that something's kind of afoot, but at the same time, not gonna say no to it, that was the norm at that particular time," said Fath' Carter.

Oklahoma State has launched a response.okstate.edu in response to the allegations; they say to keep the public informed on how OSU is handling this.

As OSU Presidents Burns Hargis said, "we will investigate the accuracy of the allegations and take all appropriate action. And "We do not condone or tolerate improper conduct in our athletic programs."
